Jump Rope for Heart Event RESCHEDULED
Due to the “rain/snow mix” and cool temperature forecast for Thursday, the Gr. 4 to 6 Jump Rope for Heart event scheduled for Thursday afternoon has been rescheduled for Monday, March 30 afternoon.
Students can continue to collect donations over the Easter Break (money is due April 14), or they can hand their envelopes in when they have completed collecting or reached their goal (for their prizes).
Thanks for your support! Clear Vista Division 2 Teachers
HEART and STROKE JUMP ROPE for HEART
Supporting kids' health for more than 30 years, Heart and Stroke Jump Rope for Heart encourages kids to get active by skipping rope while they collect pledges for heart disease and stroke research. The program gives children the chance to jump and play alongside 750,000 other kids in more than 4,000 schools across Canada.
Clear Vista has been a participant in this fundraising event for the over 15 years and some of the past years’ pledges have reached over $6000! On Thursday, March 12 @ 1 p.m. the grades 4, 5, and 6 students will be participating in a “Kick-Off” event where our Heart and Stroke Foundation of Alberta Representative will be explaining the benefits of an active lifestyle, the super prizes that can be earned for the fundraisers, the upcoming Jump Rope Event, and all about the fundraising. Information sheets will be given out at that time as well.
The Jump Rope for Heart Event will be on Monday, March 30 from 1-3 p.m. in the gym. We’ll be skipping to some great music and you are welcome to stop by and feel the excitement! Students will have until Tuesday, April 14th to bring in their pledges (remember it can be done online as well at jumpropeforheart.ca)
This Friday, February 27, 2015 our school will launch a new electronic flyer / newsletter communication tool called “Peachjar.” As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly, embrace innovative technology, and maintain fiscal responsibility, we have transitioned from paper to electronic flyer/newsletter delivery. Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools will pilot three schools to test this new electronic e-flyer system. Buck Mountain Central School, Clear Vista School, and Ecole Parkdale School.
Parents, in order to have the newsletters and e-flyers delivered to your inbox visit Peachjar.com and register. This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers/ newsletters. Your email address will never be shared or used for any other purpose.
You can also view school-approved newsletters/eflyers simply by clicking on the Peachjar button above.
This “green” initiative will provide parents with better access to information about school programs, activities, and events.
Our school will cooperate with approved community partners by posting eflyers online and distributing them electronically through our Peachjar service. The Peachjar service is free to our schools because community partners pay a small service fee to post and distribute eflyers which is typically no more than the cost to copy and deliver paper flyers or advertise in local newspapers. If you are a community partner that would like to distribute flyers to our school community visit peachjar.com and register your organization.

PARENT & STUDENT Access to Maplewood Connect Ed (teacher markbooks and school data base)
Several teachers at Clear Vista School have volunteered to pilot providing parents and students access to their markbooks as well as to the information the school has in its data base about students. This information includes school fees, attendance, contact information, student timetables, marks and so on.
While not every teacher is doing this, several teachers from grades 5-9 are participating. Parents and students in grades 5-9 will receive a package in the mail providing more information as well as how to log into their account to access this information. We hope to use this pilot to provide us with information that will be helpful as we look at providing access to all parents and students in the future.
GET ACCESS by "clicking" on the "Go" word on the left side of our website, under the title Connect Ed Student & Parent.
For further information, please contact Mr. Fittes.
Clear Vista offers 2 groups of full day kindergarten. Students in each group attend 2 full days per week with the occasional scheduled fridays.
